The plaintiff sues the defendant for R2 167 869 in damages arising from her unlawful arrest, detention and sexual harassment whilst in police custody. Typically the defendant delivered a bare denial plea. In 2016 the defendant conceded the arrest and detention of the plaintiff but denied the sexual harassment.

Despite undertaking to amend its plea at the pre-trial conference the defendant failed to do so. The trial proceeded on the issue of liability only.
